2019 Corolla LE backup camera has poor resolution

#1
The resolution on my brand new corolla backup camera is horrible! It’s often grainy or has a bad glare and at night, it’s pretty much useless. I can somewhat make out objects but the quality is so poor I just end up using my mirrors. Guess I just expected better resolution from a brand new vehicle, especially a Toyota

Reduce the brightness in the screen settings. There is a separate setting for the camera. I brought it down all the way and it help a lot.

Ditto my 2018! I just sold a 9 year old Prius for this car and I was horrified with the poor performance of the Corolla backup camera. I tried playing with the camera settings but nothing cured a bad image. It's seriously like going back 9 years in cellphone cameras. Unbelievable. I wish they had used the Prius 9 years older, but far superior, camera system.

I had to bring the contrast and brightness all the way down on the camera for it to be acceptable. It's still slightly bright but this still depends on the environment. As you can see, I have snow in this view so it appears bright. About 98% of the time the camera is functional since I updated the settings. Try changing the settings and see how you like it.

As for the resolution, it's low but it's acceptable for what you need the camera to do. Such as checking for anything directly behind you and guide you between parking lines.

See attached and ignore my previous post. Had issues....

I thought the same thing. I turned the brightness and contrast all the way down as well. I plan on replacing the radio with a Pioneer NEX unit from my old '03 Corolla S. That should help.
